Guitar Gear Review: Jackson Limited Edition San Dimas SD22 JB

Bare Knuckle Pickups Silo Humbucker Set

The Silo humbuckers are the newest addition to Bare Knuckle’s contemporary category of pickups. They are made for, and in conjunction with, Rebea Massaad. You may know Rabea from his work with Frog Leap Studios or perhaps some of his demo videos. His demo of the BKP Ragnanok is a big hit, as are his videos of the BKP Boot Camp line of pickups. For me, I dig Rabea’s discussion on how to use a compressor. It’s one of the more misunderstood and commonly mis-used pedals. He lays it out so that even a guitar player can figure it out.

Guitar Gear Review: Mojotone 44 Magnum Humbucker Set
